Middle School Announcement
While it may still be freezing outside, it's time to dream about ultimate!
On Sunday afternoons April 6-May11, Minnesota Youth Ultimate will be running our second annual middle school ultimate league! The league is open to any student grade 5-8 in the metro area.
Whether students are new to the sport or wily veterans, ultimate has something for everyone! Ultimate is a fun, fast-paced, friendly sport played with a disc. There are no referees, meaning players are responsible for making all calls themselves, which helps develop respect, communication, and integrity.
Last year, our league consisted of 70 boys and girls. Each week's session involves a mini-clinic, followed by gameplay. Our coaches have included players from the Minnesota Wind Chill (MN's professional ultimate team), University of Minnesota Ninjas (placed 9th at College Nationals), and Minneapolis' co-ed club team (won Club Nationals). We're looking to grow this year!
Registration is now open! Go to our Google Docs page to enter your information then go to the Documents tab on our Information page and fill out the two waivers and the Medical Authorization form.
If you have questions, students and their parents can contact us at MinnesotaMiddleSchoolUltimate@gmail.com.
